February 15: "Cinderella"

On this date in History .... 1950:

Disney’s “Cinderella” is first shown in U.S. movie theaters becoming one of the highest grossing films in 1950. It took six years and $2.9 million to make, and grossed over $34 million. 
It was the first Disney film to have its songs published and copyrighted by the newly formed Disney Recording Company. The song, “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo” was nominated for an Oscar.
To save money on the animation, the pumpkin coach was drawn to seem to float on air so they wouldn’t have to animate the wheels, with the filigree design, turning.
Nowhere in the film is the Prince ever referred to as “Prince Charming”.
